Plessy v. Ferguson
Facts of the Case
Questions before the Court
Is Louisiana's law mandating racial segregation on its trains an unconstitutional infringement on both the privileges and immunities and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment?
The Plessy vs. Ferguson which was decided in 1896 was a case that challenged the Louisiana Separate Car Act. Homer Plessy, who was 7/8 white and 1/8 black, purchased a rail ticket for white passengers. However, since he was 1/8 black he was told to move to the black seats but he refused. Plessy was then arrested and charged for violating the Separate Car Act.
